Agilent Technologies Inc. has expanded its Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis Center of Excellence in Bangalore. The company also has also opened a Life Science application development lab, in an adjacent facility, to accelerate the discovery of life science analysis workflows. Together, the center and lab cover 8,000 square feet, making this the largest Agilent research facility in the world.
"India continues to be one of the most important markets for Agilent globally, with a significant presence of high-end R&D in pharmaceuticals and biotechnology," said Parmeet Ahuja, Country General Manager, Agilent Technologies, India. “This is the first Agilent lab facility where development of application solutions, customer interactions and training will happen in parallel.”
The combined facility plays an important role not just in applications and solutions development, but also in customer education. Agilent application scientists engaged in pharma, biopharma and other life science applications staff the facility and work hand in hand with customers, thereby having access to critical samples and learning about emerging application needs.
The Bangalore Center of Excellence is modeled on the same standards as other Agilent centers, with an emphasis on Agilent's global environmental, health and safety guidelines.
